Bizarre domestic disturbance and a reported shooting in Douglas County Saturday morning

Douglas County Deputies and Lawrence Police were all kept pretty busy this morning.

Lawrence Police conducted around 30 vehicle stops, three bar checks and responded on four disturbances.

The only noteworthy disturbance in Lawrence reportedly involved 30 subjects pushing and shoving near 10th & Mass Streets. The incident was reported around 12:45 a.m., no injuries or arrests were reported. Most of the subjects had separated before LPD arrived.

Douglas County Deputies were called out on a rather odd domestic disturbance in southwestern Douglas County around 1:30 a.m.. Dispatchers received calls from a man that said his brother was trying to harm him. Dispatchers also received a call from the men's sister, who lives nearly 1,000 miles away, and wanted Deputies to check on her brothers who she said live together. Deputies arrived at the address just as one of the brothers drove his truck onto the roadway and immediately crashed in front of the patrol vehicles. It was unclear what the man hit with the truck, he did not report any injuries and was detained by Deputies. The second brother was located a short distance away and claimed to be the victim of a battery. The man that was apparently trying to flee from the address and wrecked his truck was arrested and now faces a domestic battery charge. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Deputies were called to the area of The Outhouse, 1800 block of N. 1500 Road, on a reports of a possible shooting. The caller reported three gunshots outside of the building. There was also mention of a bus being somehow involved in the incident. Deputies arrived to find a vehicle in the ditch in front of the address and a party bus driving away. Lawrence officers responded to help locate and stop the party bus, which was stopped a short time later. The bus reportedly had 30 people on board. It was unclear how the bus was involved or what caused the vehicle to end up in the ditch. No injuries or arrests were reported in the incident.

Lawrence Police and the Kansas Highway Patrol each recorded one arrest for DWI/OUI related offenses. The highway patrol also made an arrest for an outstanding warrant and another arrest for driving on a suspended license.

The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.

    Seven arrests on nearly 20 different charges this morning.

    As they are on most weekends, law enforcement officers in Douglas County were kept plenty busy this Saturday morning.

    Here are some of this morning's numbers;

    • 7 Total arrests
    • 6 Disturbances
    • 2 Attempts to flee from officers
    • 2 OUI/DWI related arrests
    • 2 Reports of gunshots (same area/time)
    • 1 Non-injury accident

    The first of which was reported just before 12:30 a.m. at Tonic Lounge, 728 Massachusetts Street. A caller reported a man had "pulled a knife on staff." Officers caught up with a man matching the description a short distance away, behind 722 Massachusetts Street. No injuries or arrests were reported related to this incident.

    Just after 1 a.m., Police were involved in a foot pursuit with a man in the 800 block of Vermont Street. Officers caught up with him in the 1000 block of Vermont Street. At the time, it was unclear why the man was running but, after he was booked it became clear. This morning the 19-year-old man faces charges including interference with the duties of an officer, public urination, possession of alcohol by a minor, and consumption/possession of liquor in public.

    Next, officers were off to the area of W 25th Street and Redbud Lane following two reports of gunshots heard in the area. Callers reported between two and five gunshots heard in the area around 1:45 a.m.. Five officers checked the area but, did not report locating anything in the area.

    Lawrence Police were called to a hit and run non-injury accident near 10th & Alabama at 2:21 a.m.. KU Police located the suspect vehicle abandoned on Alabama Street just north of Fambrough Drive. KU Police reported that LPD had located the driver a short time later. As of this report, no arrests have been recorded related to the activity.

    Just before 2:45 a.m., KU Police were called to Learned Hall, 1530 W. 15th Street, on a report of an alarm sounding. The officer located an "emergency shower" which had been activated. After shutting off the water and silencing the alarm, the officer reported a quarter inch of water on the floor. It was unclear if the water had done any damage to any rooms.

    At 2:59 a.m., Lawrence Police and Firefighters were called to the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house on a reported structure fire. A caller had reported that there was smoke in both staircases. Officers arrived to find that there was no smoke, only an "accidental discharge" of a fire extinguisher. Firefighters arrived and quickly confirmed that there was no smoke or fire.

    At 4:38 a.m., six Lawrence Police units were assigned to a domestic disturbance call in the 1100 block of Stone Meadows Drive after one of the involved parties decided that he could outrun officers. Needless to say, he was proved wrong and was taken into custody a short distance away. He now faces a total of six charges, three related to outstanding warrants. The new charges are all related to the domestic and his decision to run from officers. Those charges include domestic battery, criminal restraint and obstruction of the legal process.

He faces charges for failure to report an accident, leaving the scene of an accident with damage to vehicle/property and no insurance.

    Two of the trespassing calls this morning involved unknown subjects trying to enter Greek houses.

    The first was reported about 2:30 a.m. and involved a man in a red coat who was knocking and possibly trying to open the front door of the Kappa Kappa Gamma house at 1 Gower Place. After no one answered the door, the man made his way to the rear of the house, before disappearing from sight towards the Chancellor's residence just to the west.

    At 12:19 a.m., Lawrence Police and Fire were called to the area of W. 26th Street and Redbud Lane after a 911 caller reported a trash can or dumpster on fire near an apartment building.

Several police officers and one fire unit descended on the area to look for any signs of fire in the area. The caller gave an address of 1821 W. 26th Street, at that address officers located nothing.
